Dreams of Kyoto by Mixtaped Monk

2017-02-11 03:41:34 UTC

New

Mixtaped Monk is a one man DIY music project by a journalist and music producer (Arka Sengupta) who believes in making music that soothes the mind. This project was started as an outlet for his creative expressions. So, under the moniker of Mixtaped Monk, he not only expresses himself as a music producer but also as a writer and a visual artist.

Being socially awkward since childhood, he always loved solitude. And, in his solitude, the thing which he liked to do the most is discovering music. Be it the cassette of Pink Floyd's “Dark Side of The Moon,” which he discovered, in his uncle's old room, during his early teenage, or the first mixtape that he made for a girl when he was a little bit older, music has always been his sole companion. Gradually, he picked up playing the keyboard and the guitar, started experimenting with music and realized that there is a whole world of possibilities for him to explore. That is how the idea of Mixtaped Monk started.

There are a few artistes who have influenced him considerably in his lifetime and sometimes changed his whole perspective towards making music. They are Nick Drake, Steven Wilson, Mikael Akerfeldt, Marconi Union, Brian Eno, Steve Roach, Scott Hansen, Trent Reznor, Gustavo Santaolalla and Sascha Ring.

Right from the time he was in school, Arka had an immense fascination for anime. And that led to his (almost) obsession with Japanese culture. It all started with Naruto and Naruto Shippuuden. But when he watched Rurouni Kenshin for the first time, he was fascinated with the way the city of Kyoto was portrayed in the anime. And so he began researching the city, its current form and the long history associated with it. Since then, from time to time, he's had these dreams about the city. Sometimes they were associated with historical events and sometimes with the modern era. But in all, they were always so vivid that he could literally feel the profound beauty and heritage of Kyoto within him.

Through DREAMS OF KYOTO, Arka has tried to provide a soundtrack for the nature of the dreams he has of Kyoto.

New album - Arq by Par

2017-02-07 04:48:21 UTC

New

Arq is the new album of Par, project by Nacho Adda (Montevideo, Uruguay, 1983) based on experimental electronic music. While his previous works El Futuro (2013) and Ahí viene la Tormenta (2015) were more socially influenced, Arq is strongly marked by the modernist and rational concepts of modern architecture and its theoreticians. In this case, the producer attempts to translate these concepts to sounds and structures in 10 songs that make up the album. Preserving his experimental and minimalist nature, the album creates atmospheres that place the listener in different spaces and environments by using a dense or delicate, but always subtle, electronic sound palette.

"This album reflects upon how the city influences us emotionally from its structure and infrastructure; and at the same time it raises questions, driven by the sound atmospheres it creates, about alienation, the degradation of the public area and our perception of community"

It was recorded and mixed by Nacho Adda and mastered by Emiliano Zapata. The cover design is by Nacho Adda with 3D modeling by Carlos Laviña.

New EP - Death of a Giant by Sea Yarns

2017-01-16 04:37:02 UTC

New

Sea Yarns is a written, recorded, and performed by Tavis MacLeod.  

Sea Yarns - Death of a Giant EP is a modern take on instrumental surf music for places that are not necessarily sunny or sandy.  As a fan on old surf music from the early 60's, I wanted to make surf music that is more relevant by todays standards that represent the cold, seasonal, moody, rocky shoreline that I know and grew up next to, rather than the sunny and sandy all the time beaches and surf culture of southern California in the 60's, which I know nothing about.  


Genre : electronic, experimental, rock, drone, instrumental, post-punk, post-rock, punk
